31.5 Week Update
I know, I’m a little late with this update, but we just got our Internet connection up and running since we moved out to Rochester Hills. We found a new OB doctor and had our first appointment with him on the 11th. It wasn’t much of an appointment. Basically the doctor wanted to meet with us and see how the three of us were doing. Ian’s heart rate was around 150 again, which has been normal for him. This appointment was more of a “meet and greet” than a basic OB checkup. He said Ian is doing good though. Our next appointment is on the 29th, so hopefully I’ll have more to report than.
Speaking of Ian, the little man is starting to get cramped. He’s been moving a lot more and causing me all sorts of uncomfortableness. Nothing too unexpected considering I’ve had a pretty good pregnancy up til now. We haven’t seen any footprints on my stomach yet, but we’re definitely seeing movement. I’ve found that if I sit for long periods of time, than Ian gets restless and starts to move A LOT. As long as I stay active, it seems to keep him quiet. That’s both good and bad obviously.
Since I’m a new parent, I like looking for useful information and I found an organization called Born Learning.Org and they have a “Your Child At…” series that seems to have a lot of information. For instance, in the “Your Child at Birth”, it talks about SIDS, jaundice, what is developing, and some basic safety info. I figure the more information I have, the better prepared I can be for when Ian finally arrives. God knows I’ll be learning as he grows, just like him, but at least I can do some research while I’m developing my parenting skills.
